Ooredoo Myanmar launches eSIM service

Ooredoo Myanmar announced that it is now offering eSIMs to subscribers, making it the first telco in Myanmar to support the technology.

Existing Ooredoo Myanmar subscribers can upgrade to eSIM at no charge, while customers in need of a new SIM can buy eSIMs at the same price as physical SIM cards.

In either case, eSIMs can be purchased and installed direct to the user’s device by obtaining a QR code from the Ooredoo SuperApp or website and following the instructions. Customers can also visit the usual mobile shops if they need help installing it.

Ooredoo Myanmar is pitching eSIMs as a convenient, fast alternative to buying physical SIMs, as well as an efficient option for frequent travelers who use local providers or worry about losing their original SIM card. The telco says its eSIMs can be used in 118 countries via its international roaming service.

Ooredoo Myanmar is also promoting the fact that customers can use multiple SIMs on a single phone, rather than having to buy multiple devices. eSIM-compatible handsets can store between five to eight eSIM profiles. Users can switch between them instantly with just a few clicks on the phone.

“With more and more modern mobile devices supporting eSIM technology, we are very proud to launch among the most globally advanced eSIM services in Myanmar,” said Ooredoo Myanmar acting CEO Chris Peirce in a statement.
